Bong Hits 4 Jesus

I've been thinking about starting a blog for nearly a year. What held me back was deciding whether or not I should censor myself (yes, it was that difficult of a decision).

I chose not to.

My purpose in posting is less to keep family and friends updated on our lives and more to encourage me to write. I miss it. In fact, it's a joke in my family that during high school my father's writing assignments for me were so intense that, as he put it, "If you're not researching a paper, writing a paper, or proof reading a paper, you're wrong."

I do realize, though, that from time to time I may offend someone's sensibilities. Voltaire put it best, and I take it to heart: "we have a natural right to make use of our pens as of our tongue, at our peril, risk and hazard."
